| Yes, and use whatever SMIL 2.1 uses most.

In the SMIL 2.1 Spec, the big winner was "runtime"
runtime: 41
runtimes: 3
run-time: 4
run time: 0!

In SVG Tiny 1.2, it is also the winner, but only because I changed all the
other instances:
runtime: 2
runtimes: 0
run-time: 6
run time: 1

I have standardized on "runtime" throughout.

I buy that.  I've changed "Eventbase-element" to "event-base element"
throughout (gladly, because the former was a clunky term).

Thanks for your feedback.  Let us know right away if this doesn't satisfy
your concern.

Thanks-
